This weekend, WonderCon 2011 took place in San Francisco. We were there last year but unfortunately didn’t make it this time and I wish we had so that I could have seen this brand new footage from the ThunderCats animated series which they showed in one of the panels.
This is the second look at the series following a previous promo trailer that hit earlier in the year. This also follows the preview footage for the new live action movie which is also in the works. If you’re a fan of ThunderCats (as I very much am), then we have a lot to look forward to!
The new “ThunderCats” will appeal to viewers who have loved the characters all their lives as well as young newcomers to the franchise. A sweeping tale combining swords and science and boasting ferocious battles with the highest of stakes, the grand origin story of Prince Lion-O’s ascension to the throne – and of those who would thwart his destiny at any cost – takes on epic dimensions in this sharp new telling. As the forces of good and evil battle each other in the quest for the fabled Stones of Power, Lion-O and his champions learn valuable lessons of loyalty, honor and mortality in every episode.
